Exposes the corporate threats to the future of intellectual inquiry. Corporate investments, Soley argues, have led universities to attend to the interests of their well-heeled patrons, rather than those of students.
“Confirms what most student activists already know from daily experience … that the truly pervasive influences in America intellectual culture is not ‘PC’ but ‘BC’—Big Corporations.”—National Progressive Student Network
“Soley’s book puts a face (or at least a corporate logo) on the companies that are working to control the moral, financial and political direction of American colleges and universities. A must read for students fighting corporate domination.”—Center for Campus Organizing
